INSTRUCTIONS 1. Make the sauce: place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.

2. Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat gas grill to high (alternatively, heat a cast iron grill pan over medium-high heat). In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, cumin and oregano; set spices aside. Pat the fish dry, season with salt and sprinkle with spices; refrigerate for 15 minutes. Brush the grill with oil and working in batches if necessary, grill fish, flipping once until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

3. Serve grilled fish on warm tortillas with cabbage, onion, tomato and a drizzle of chipotle sauce as desired with a squeeze of lime.
